Teaching my children to question authority, except mine.



When I am stressed out, I grind my teeth in my sleep. I grind them so loudly that I have been known to wake up my husband. Between work and anxiety over getting this dossier done before we go on vacation, I am apparently feeling a little tense. I broke a tooth last night while grinding in my sleep. I’m a bit freaked out about it. I really really hate going to the dentist. Really. I am on the verge of a huge anxiety attack as I have an appointment in an hour to get my tooth fixed. The thing I hate most about the dentist, aside from the pain they inflict? I hate being scolded. I am paying for your services, don’t scold me like a child.

I miss my old dentist in Ohio. He understood my anxiety over dentistry and didn’t take it personally. He gave me valium to take before my appointment and a nice stead flow of nitrous oxide through out my appointment. If I was going to be a drug addict, my drug of choice would be laughing gas. You would see me shuffling down the street with a tank strapped to my back.
